Grappa aged over four years in wood.
Nebbiolo from Barbaresco DOCG, DOC Dolcetto d’Alba and Barbera d’Alba DOC.
Pomace origin and conservation
Neive, Barbaresco, Trezzo Treiso and Alba; DOC – DOCG areas.
The pomace, chosen fresh and still dripping with juice, blended according to an ancient recipe of Serafino Levi, is now compressed in underground pits in order to get a natural curing, able to extract all the aromas and flavours from the grapes.
Characteristics of the still
Copper pot still, the only direct fire device in the world still being used for distilling Grappa.
“Grappa distillata da ignari” (Grappa distilled by unaware people) with the discontinuous method with direct fire and submerged pomace.
The steam generated from the distillation of pomace, enriched with alcohol-aromatic components, is condensed with subsequent fractional distillation of the phlegm in a copper column with 7 plates.
This procedure, perfected by Romano Levi and still strictly adhered to, ensures the perfect conservation of the aromatic components, important for the organoleptic characteristics of Grappa.
